First Friday Downtown and at SOFA!
Date: February 5, 2016 from 5 – 8 pm
On the first Friday evening of every month, the downtown Santa Rosa art galleries and venues are open late for your enjoyment. First Friday has become very popular!
The Meet the Artist Series at the Gallery at Corrick’s is a proud part of the Downtown Santa Rosa First Friday Artwalk, alongside the Calabi Gallery on 10th Street, the Annex Galleries on College Avenue, and the South of A (SOFA) Studios with Chroma Gallery on A Street!
Corrick‘s is delighted to be featuring Michelle and Abigail throughout the month of February, and especially to offer you the chance to Meet the Artists, this First Friday of February. Wine (generously donated by Annadel Estate Winery) will be available at $5 per glass, with the proceeds, together with 10% of art sales, going to benefit Sonoma Land Trust.

This month, the SOFA District will feature ‘Small Works’, an entire evening focused on affordable artwork on the small side. At CMFA, they will show photography as well as mini mixed media works. It’s a casual evening where visitors have a chance to visit artist studios and get a first hand look at works still drying on the easel.
